Peter Andre to star in Grease at Leicester’s Curve theatre for 2019 tour

Fans of Mysterious Girl singer Peter Andre have reason to get excited, as the popular performer is coming to Leicester.

The singer-songwriter, who rose to fame in the 1990s, will appear as Teen Angel in the new Made at Curve production of Grease, which is touring the UK and Ireland next year.

The production will be at Curve from September 3 to 14, 2019.

Following a highly acclaimed sold out eight-week run at Curve over Christmas 2016, the first new production in 25 years of Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey’s iconic musical Grease will be directed by Curve’s artistic director Nikolai Foster and choreographed by Arlene Phillips.

Peter Andre will appear as Teen Angel at certain performances, in Leeds, Southend, Sunderland, Birmingham, Leicester, Dublin, Oxford and Bromley.

Further casting is to be announced.

Peter Andre is known for his successful music and television career, and he became the sixth highest selling artist in the UK in the 1990s with hits such as Mysterious Girl, Flava and I Feel You.

He has had numerous number one hit singles, two number one albums and has toured all over the world, collecting a multitude of national and international awards.

His TV shows and appearances include his reality show Peter Andre: My Life, 60 Minute Makeover and the third series of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here in 2004.

Curve’s chief executive Chris Stafford and Nikolai Foster said: “We are looking forward to working alongside Jim Jacobs, Colin Ingram and Arlene Philips on the return of our critically acclaimed, Made at Curve production of Grease.

“Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey’s musical is an electrifying celebration of the birth of cool and teenage culture. It provides a gripping snapshot of a country on the cusp of social change, all set to one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll scores ever written.

“Curve audiences love Grease and we are immensely proud to be sharing our production with audiences across the UK.”

The musical features songs such as Summer Nights, Greased Lightin’, Hopelessly Devoted to You and You’re The One That I Want.

This new production of Grease is produced by Colin Ingram for InTheatre Productions, Donovan Mannato, William Sinclair, Ricardo Marques, Hunter Arnold and Curve.

It features designs by Colin Richmond, orchestrations and musical supervision by Sarah Travis, lighting design by Guy Hoare and sound design by Sebastian Frost.

Tickets will be on sale soon.
